    If you want a taste of the Amalfi coast, look no further. Tucked into a quaint courtyard, Il Tegamino made us feel transported into a romantic fairytale. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and engaging. The food was delicious. The wine list was extensive and reasonable. All around, an incredible meal and experience. We will be sure to visit every time we are in Carmel by the sea.

    Lovely courtyard, exuberant host, attentive wait staff, and outstanding pasta ragu. The ravioli special with fig, ham, sage in a bechamel sauce was also delicious. Salad Piedmontese was enjoyed by all. Tiramisu was nicely presented in a coffee cup. The pistachio ice cream had excellent flavor. We enjoyed our whole experience.

    We started with zucchini blossom which was not remarkable. We then had Ragu Napolentano and Ravioli Al Fichi E Asiago. Both were delicious. We took Torta Al Limoncello and Bomboloni Al Cioccolata home and enjoyed both with a glass of wine later in the evening. Service was great and ambience nice in outdoor garden. Highly recommend dining in this special place.

    What an experience.... Chef Giuseppe served us an 8-course handmade pasta meal for our honeymoon. We arrived very late in the evening and were accommodated with utmost hospitality. We tasted the various pasta dishes late into the night while the crew cleaned up. For dessert we had a cannoli with strawberry sauce. Cannot recommend chef and his crew's cooking enough, as well as the hospitality.

    Service was disgraceful. The “waiter” took over 15 minutes to greet us and we did not see him again until we had a question about our bill. The hostess did everything else - The quality of the food did not match the bill - very overpriced. With all the options in Carmel I regret stopping here to dine.

    The wait staff was wonderful and commendable. The stuffed zucchini blossoms were subpar because the batter over took the flavor of everything including the cheese. The blossom itself was undetectable. Our salads came out too early and the expediter process was severely flawed. The same with our main meal. I had a decent piece of Bronzino but rather than broiling or sautéing with olive oil lemon or white wine, it had a thick heavy balsamic drizzle across it which was incongruent to the fish flavor. Both of our dishes were on some type of purée which was cold and obviously had been sitting there for use. Again, the ambience and the staff were very good but the food was very disappointing.

    The terrace is amazing. Idyllic. Gorgeous. The service - absolutely worst ever. They had a decent wine list, but we’re quick to tell us it’s all out of date do they may not have what we want. 5 tries later, none available. In the end, all they had were bottles that were also wines by the glass. Only 2 servers for the entire place. Also 2 gentlemen who’s role was difficult to determine (seemed like resetting tables). The service and experience was simply so bad, we just started laughing. What else can you do? My advice, pass on this place until they are back to being better resourced.

I had the rags and it was delicious, my daughter said the ravioli special was the best she had ever tasted. The desserts where also good.
